The laboratory of Dr. Valeria Cavalli is seeking passionate scientists to join her team and contribute to her NIH-funded research projects on the multicellular mechanisms regulating peripheral sensory neuron function and dysfunction in injury and disease.
The lab is currently investigating how the microenvironment surrounding sensory neurons in dorsal root ganglia regulate sensory functions and contribute to promote axon regeneration after peripheral and central axon injuries. We are also interested in determining how the microenvironment is affected in aging and disease models related to sensory dysfunctions such as autism. Preferred skills include but are not limited to single cell sequencing, bioinformatics and molecular/cellular neuroscience.
